Melissa, the woman from MSNBC who interviewed me this morning, would like to talk to a few people who have taken antibiotics to no avail. If that’s you, please feel free to email her at She’s cool and easy to talk to.

    Really interesting info, its amazing how antibiotics are still so widely prescribed as the key medical treatment option for acne dispite being so ineffective for so many acne suffers. If the medical community really adopted Dan’s regime as the first treatment option it would save so much wasted time and money and suffering. Unfortunatley, I can’t see this happening anytime soon.

  • Sharpy

    I’ve been on various antibiotics off and on (pre-Regimen) and my acne got better at first but then got worse after a few months.

    I’m so glad I found the DKRegimen!

    Hey Dan,

    Great videos so far, awesome research. Can the BP break through these protective nets that the bacteria create for themselves? That would be nice to know.

    Keep up the awesome work!

  • Acne Esthetician

    I love your videos Dan – congrats on the interview! SO interesting that resistant bacteria can be spread from person to person…. aaarrgh!

    One thing about antibiotics that I understand in relation to acne is that because the underlying cause of acne is “retention hyperkeratosis”, that is, too many dead skin cells being shed and stuck inside the pore, antibiotics don’t address that. It is because of the pile up of dead skin cells in the pore that allow the bacteria to flourish in the first place. So bacteria is a “symtom” of the underlying cause, NOT the cause of acne.

    Even if you had an antibiotic that killed 100% of the bacteria, it wouldn’t stop the acne from forming.

    for me, antibiotics were the most effective treatment I’ve did.
